This post contains three items

1. Fieldwork documentation.

Georges helps to untangle the catch from the yellow nets – fish, crab, lobster, eel, octopus, squid.

2. Double role approach: artist / co-worker (apprentice)

  • Volunteer to work out on a traditional fishing boat
  • Do ‘real’ fishing tasks, while paying attention to the self-given fieldwork tasks. (Such as surveying the lay of the land from the water, learning about island life tactually and through conversation. Keeping senses sharp to take in the surround).
  • Documentation: Handheld, iPhone 6+
